Terrace, B.C. hatchery volunteers receive vests
VOLUNTEERS working at the Eby St. fish hatchery now have a new look thanks to Pacific Western Brewing.
The Prince George brewery donated vests for the volunteers in a presentation made by brewery representative Ben English.
The donation follows the establishment by the brewery last year of a $20,000 salmonid enhancement fund.
Volunteers at the hatchery have been raising and then releasing 25,000 coho smolts a year.
Initial support last year by the Pacific Western Brewing Community Foundation went to groups in Port Alberni and in Comox.
The vests come with a newly design Eby St. hatchery volunteer patch.
